City of Walls, created by writer Shaun Noel & artist Abede Lovelace, is our newest addition to Red Stylo Press!
We couldn’t be more excited to have a such a quality book on our team. City of Walls is a gritty, coming-of-age tale of urban sci-fi, set in the great walled oasis that is Kowloon City. Originally a military base, Kowloon is a completely internalized city. A rough and sometimes dangerous place where Triad word is law and the only way for most people to survive is by joining up. We learn about life in Kowloon through the eyes and experiences of Ariana, Daniel and Jin, three children who meet and become friends in this extreme and often surreal environment. And even though they come from different backgrounds, soon they must come together in common purpose: escape!
